Opera Naples

Naples, FL

Project Type: Cultural – Opera Center

This building serves as the rehearsal/performance venue, and administrative headquarters for Naples Premier Opera Company. The project was a complete “gut” renovation of an existing 10,500 square foot concrete block shell with a structural steel frame roof structure. The interior program is composed of the large rehearsal/ performance space with retractable seating, choir rehearsal studio, tenor and soprano studios, set production/ storage, five staff offices with an associated conference room and reception lobby. As well, the infrastructure for a future mezzanine and elevator were put in place at the time of initial build-out. The modernized building exterior features: new impact resistant windows, fresh painted stucco finish, canvas awnings, building lighting, landscaping and dramatic signage.
